Cut each apple into four, core and slice each quartered apple thinly.
In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Stir in 4 tablespoons granulated sugar. When it browns, put apples into the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low heat and sauté apples until apples are lightly browned. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
Butter lightly on bottom and sides of 9 inch cake pan. In a bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup granulated sugar.
In a bowl of stand mixer, whisk together egg, milk, peanut butter and 4 tablespoons butter on medium speed until blended. Add flour mixture, increase the speed to high and mix for about 2 minutes.
Take the apples with slotted spoon and arrange apples on the bottom of prepared cake pan. Put the batter on the apples, pour the remaining the caramel sauce over the top and bake in preheated 350 degrees F oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Let cool on a wire rack.
When the cake has cooled, invert onto a large plate and remove the cake from the pan.
